The perfect trifecta: Mon Ami Gabi, a fabulous movie house and a bookstore across the street!

Not only is the atmosphere lovely, the service is very nearly impeccable, and the food is almost always scrumptious! We always come to this bistro when in Bethesda because it is reliably good.

For lunch, dinner and brunch, you can count on this bistro for all the classics, artfully prepared and absolutely delicious. Of course, when we locals discuss Mon Ami Gabi, it has become of of those spots that has one of our town's signature specialties -- their "Steak Frites." It usually takes years to become a staple in our food picky... More

This is a perfect place to have a perfect meal. Was in Paris and expected to find food as good if not better then Mon Ami Gabi, the only thing that could compare was the bread. The onion soup at Mon Ami Gabi was far superior to that in Paris. The service is always great and the food is the... More

We dined at Mon Ami Gabi on a Saturday night before catching a movie at Bethesda Row. The Montgomery County lot that is just across Bethesda Ave. is free on the weekends. It's less than a block from the restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated immediately after they turned away two parties of walk ins ahead of us.... More

Took my son and daughter-in-law to lunch last Friday at this convenient French Bistro . With beautiful weather there were no seats outside and a wait inside, so we decided to just sit at the elegant bar. The stools were very comfortable and the bartender, Richard, very friendly. We each had the French Onion Soup which also came in a... More

Had an incredible lunch with my mother and sister-in-law. The scallop crepe was out of this world, it literally melted in your mouth. The creme brûlée is a must. The wine selection is impressive, but most important, the service was terrific!

We had dinner last Friday night I especially enjoyed my hangar steak which was flavorful and well prepared. It is a pleasant place with valet parking which is a real plus for Bethesda. My gazpacho was excellent as well.

Nothing special, but adequate food and service. Not a good value. Wine pricey. Its convenient location makes its desirable. Nice ambiance.
